NEWQUAYS NIGHT SURF COMPETITION (Friday 16th Saturday 17th June)
The renowned annual Night Surf event will return to Fistral Beach, Newquay this weekend, Friday 16th and Saturday 17th June. This is thanks to a partnership between the UK Pro Surfing Association (UKPSA), Smart Parking, Britannic Industry (owners of the Beach Complex), Fistral Beach Bar, The Stable Restaurant and Korev Lager. One of the only events of its kind in Europe, the extremely popular Night Surf attracts the best British surfers, many international competitors and a large supportive crowd for a two day competition under the special flood lights. Live music, DJs and fireworks also light up the beach and if there is any surf event to put in your calendar, this is it.
The Night Surf started off 17 years ago at Lusty Glaze and moved to Fistral Beach in 2009. It is one of the biggest and most important surf contests in the area and continues to grow from strength to strength. This year we not only have an Open division but have the Stable Women’s, Fistral Beach Under 18 Boys and Under 18 Girls divisions Â
Dave Reed, Director of the UK Pro Surf Tour said: We would like all the sponsors for coming forward with an invaluable support to keep this popular event going. The Night Surf is an integral part of the annual Newquay event calendar and the UKPSA pro surfers programme. So many people want this event to happen and understand its role in Newquay and in surfing UK-wise
The Night Surf starts on Friday at 4pm where the first lot of surfers will take to the waves for the Open, Women’ s and Junior divisions. They will continue to battle it out through dusk and late into the night on Friday and Saturday. The forecast could not be much better we are looking forward to great waves between 3-6ft and good weather
For the spectators, as well as being able to see some of the top UK’s surfers doing their stuff under challenging conditions, there will be a firework display on the Saturday night at 10.30pm as part of the closing party. Throughout both evenings there will also be live music, DJs and beach activities for all ages.
